TCW Hero of the Week
It is ‘lazy’ to claim the Paris terror attacks had nothing to do with Islam and British Muslims need to do more to tackle extremism. Who said this, we hear you ask. It was our esteemed Culture Secretary, Sajid Javid, who is rapidly becoming a genuine Tory leadership contender. He is also our hero of the week.
TCW Villain of the Week
More than two million people took to the streets of Paris on Sunday in a unity march. 40 world leaders chose to join them, including former French President Nicolas Sarkozy. As Laurence Hodge highlighted, he spent less time in mourning and more of his afternoon muscling his way to the front row and into the limelight. Shameless self-promotion from the man angling for another stint in the Elysée Palace.
Reader’s Comment of the Week
As a working man with no dependent children, I am fed up with paying for all this “free stuff”. I have been very disappointed that the Conservative-led Government has not reined in all these benefits invented by Gordon Brown. For that reason, and some others, I will be giving my vote to Ukip in May. Although it won’t win, I hope it can scare the Tories into becoming Conservative again, rather than a blue version of Labour complete with all the PC nonsense.
